A 35-year-old woman whose name has been not disclosed has been arrested by the police for allegedly dumping her day old baby boy in a public toilet in a community called Baatea in the Jaman south municipality of the Bono Region.
It is alleged that this act was committed by the woman because the baby belonged to another man whom she is cheating with since her husband had travelled to Dubai.
To avoid shame and social ridicule she decided to dump the new-born in a public toilet. She also added she had seven other children who she was struggling to take care of and as such decided to get rid of the eighth child.
Speaking to Afia Agyei Sikapa on Rainbow Radio News at 7am, the assemblyman of the area, Mr. Nketia said they had to demolish the toilet in order to rescue the child who luckily is still alive and responding to treatment at the Berekum Holy Family hospital.
The mother as at now is to face the court in due time. She also promised that she would take good care of the child after treatment.
